to SE Oracle Locator upgrade fails on Linux X86-84

(Doc ID 1908389.1)

Last updated on JULY 16, 2014

Applies to:

Oracle Spatial and Graph - Version and later
Linux x86-64


This issue involves a Standard Edition (SE) Oracle database upgrade from to in which Oracle Locator ( Multimedia ) is installed but Oracle Spatial is not.

A typical scenario would be where, in the environment above, a Spatial application worked fine prior to the upgrade and fails after the upgrade.

Application errors may be similar to this:

Internal Exception: java.sql.SQLException: ORA-29902: error in executing
ODCIIndexStart() routine
ORA-13209: internal error while reading SDO_INDEX_METADATA table
ORA-29400: data cartridge error
ORA-00904: "SDO_NUM_BLKS": invalid identifier
ORA-13236: internal error in R-tree processing: [Failed to execute query
(13236) [mdimdLibCacheReadInt]]
ORA-00904: ORA-00904: "SDO_NUM_BLKS": invalid identifier
: invalid identifier
ORA-06512: at "MDSYS.SDO_INDEX_METHOD_10I", line 333
ORA-06512: at "MDSYS.SDO_INDEX_METHOD_10I", line 482

This type of error may be generated when attempting to rebuild an index
